2. Overview What is Integrated ALM? How can it be implemented? What are the benefits of Integrated ALM? How does it produce better quality of software? How can we get cross-tool reporting using this? How does this help in project execution? What does Kovair offer?Kovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 2 3. What is Integrated ALM Integrated Application Lifecycle Management(ALM) is a totallyintegrated set of tools and processes that help organizationsmanage the complete lifecycle of an application development. It connects different teams, activities, platforms, tools andprocesses. It spans from idea generation to the end of the applications life.Kovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 3 4. How Can We Implement Integrated ALM Point-To-Point Integrations Best-of-breed multi-vendor tools Handcrafted integration code between pair of tools Can not scale to more than a few tools Single Vendor All-In-One solutions All tools from a single vendor are pre-integrated Each integration is based on the vendors guideline of usage The vendor does all the integration Can not use best-of-breed tools Less control over integration rules ALM Integration Middleware Best-of-breed multi-vendor tools Adapters/connectors connect the tools to the middleware Customers can develop their own adapters with available open APIs Integration rules are defined by the customerKovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 4 5.

How Does It Impact Quality Improve Quality Provides the right context for every stage of ALM Ensures code quality and performance throughout the lifecycle process.Quality of work is validated at every stage and defects are caught duringthe process, instead of at the end of it. Gain Greater Insight - What is the quality of the current release that weare working on? Which part is not stable yet? What are the correctiveactions needed? Enforces Best Practice Processes across tools and artifacts Overcomes challenges for Globally Distributed Development keeps allstakeholders synchronized Enables collaboration between stakeholders - How do I see my tasks andwork items from within my tool; update my progress status and finallycomplete those? Provides real-time actionable metrics to take corrective actions Manages change with confidence; detects impacts on related artifactsautomatically and notifies the concerned stakeholdersKovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 6 7. Cross Tool Reporting How does it help in cross-tool reporting The integration middleware is aware of all events occurring in the tools The middleware should be able to capture the relevant data from theconnected tools An interface should be provided to create reports based on this data The reports and dashboards should automatically reflect the current datacoming in from the tools Benefits All the data are captured live from the systems of records Reports are based on real-time data coming directly from the tools No time wasted in manually aggregating data from multiple tools No scope for human error The reports are available anytime, anywhere through web access Allows managers to quickly identify the problem areasKovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 7 8. How Does It Help in Project Execution Program Manager Rolled up reports across multiple projects Project Manager Live reports with aggregated data from all tools Exact status of different teams working on different areas Live actionable metrics for each phase Designer Changes in Requirements and Stories become immediately visible Developer Full Context (Upstream and Downstream) is available within IDE Requirements, Stories, Design elements, Test Cases visible in IDE Changes in artifacts get reflected automatically Changes in Requirements, Stories, Test Cases get reflected in IDE Tester Context should be available easily within Test Management tool Changes in artifacts get reflected automatically Changes in Requirements, Stories, Code Files get reflectedKovair Software Copyright 2013-2014 8 9.
